    Sending a text/message then getting ignored is

    the worst thing ever. It's like you annoy them and that they don't want to speak to you. It happens to me all the time..😒

    What is the point of you messaging me

    or texting me knowing you're not going to reply? Or you have the people that won't text you at all until you say something first lol wtf?...Not with my time being wasted...I'd rather you not even have spoken to me at all.

    I hate when people read your message

    and don't respond. Like if you didn't want to talk you could have just said that.

    So I bumped into a girl

    that I really liked and I hadn't seen for half a year, and afterwards I sent her a message and we started chatting. We spoke for a few days until she suddenly stopped responding. She hadn't seen the message, but she was posting other stuff on facebook (this was the 2nd of jan or...

    If I text a friend and they dont text me back

    that bothers me to no end. I have text some of my friends and they did not respond to my text until 2 or 3 days later or not at all. When they do things like that it makes me wonder did they get my text right when I sent it to them ? Or are they mad at me ? Is there something...

    I hate one worded answers

    and slow replies. But not texting back at all? That makes me crazy! At least lie and say your phone is dying or you'll talk to me later or something!

    I went from spending every second with my

    roommate/best friend in college to barely hearing back from her when I text her. We graduated and now live in different states so the only way we can keep in touch really is through texting but she never texts back.

    A few weeks ago I met up with a girl from a

    dating site. It was just a friendly meet up. The meet went well. Well, I think so. I decided to text her yesterday saying hi and asking how she is through whatsapp and never got a response. It said she read the message as well (I tend to not bother to see if anyone has read my...

    Yep I hate it when people don't text me back,

    it leaves me thinking that they just can't be bothered with me or that they think I'm annoying or something... Also I hate it when you write a big text message and then the reply is 'k' ugh

    I met a few people on EP.

    We txt or email, but after awhile they just stop. Then I have to see post on here about how they don't have anyone to talk to. But when I txt you, you never txt back. Unless I'm just that boring, who knows? There is nothing boring about me asking you, if you're okay or how...

    I hate it when people tells me

    that they didn't reply my messages because they are not the type that respond to messages. Will you do that in real life? Like when your friend walk to you and ask how are you doing, and you ignore her because you are just the type not responding to people talking to you? What...

    that sometimes takes a few days to text me back. There have been a couple of times where she said that she was too busy so she couldn't text me back. I understand being busy because I'm busy too with a job and studying for this exam. What I don't understand is how she's too busy...

    This is one of my biggest pet peeves.

    Either I text them again or when they text me finally, I wait twice the amount of time it took them.

    So you unload all your problems onto me

    and then simply stop talking? As if I had not enough problems of my own, wonderful. Seriously, you're not living up to the standard I'm used to by you, not at all. After all we've been through, that's not what a gentleman does. In fact, that's not what any human being with a...

    It's my biggest pet peeve,

    it's not even the not texting back part. It's when you talk to someone for awhile.. Since mere babes.. And you think you're cool but they don't even like talking to you that much. It's annoying when you feel someone feels obligated to talk to you. I only want people that like...

    I don't mind it if someone doesn't text back

    normally. People are busy, I'm not the most important person in the world, I get that. But, what's infuriating is when you take someone who is supposed to be one of your best friends, one of your most trusted friends, and they don't text you, ever. Then one day, you text them...
